While standing in line at a small, corner grocery store in my neighborhood recently, I happened to notice some miniature Hershey’s brand ice cream sandwiches in a display freezer. Being a big fan of ice cream sandwiches, I immediately became interested in these tiny treats. The frozen sandwich that I am referring to is Hershey’s Mighty Mini Ice Cream Sandwich.
Hershey’s Mighty Mini Ice Cream Sandwich is one of Hershey Ice Cream’s 35c Triple Treats. These ice cream treats are smaller than full sized versions and they are priced at the incredibly low sum of just $0.35c each. Even though they share a name, Hershey’s Ice Cream is not affiliated with Hershey’s Chocolate.
Presented here, is one food writer’s product review of Hershey’s Mighty Mini Ice Cream Sandwich.
The name of this ice cream sandwich says it all. This diminutive sandwich measures 3.5″ x 2″, but it sure packs a lot of flavor into a small item. According to the product’s nutrition label, one sandwich counts as one serving.
When I first saw Hershey’s Mighty Mini Ice Cream Sandwich at a local grocery store, I was amazed. That was the first time I had seen a miniature ice cream sandwich and I thought that it looked cute. I have eaten several of these sandwiches now and I think that their smaller size is quite appealing.
The regular retail price charged for one Hershey’s Mighty Mini Ice Cream Sandwich at Hartford, Connecticut food retailers is the incredibly low $0.35c. This is the lowest regular retail price that I know of for a packaged ice cream novelty item.
After discovering the Hershey’s Mighty Mini Ice Cream Sandwich, I noticed several other Hershey’s Ice Cream $0.35c novelty items stocked in the corner grocer’s freezer. I cannot believe how low these prices are. They seem like they are priced circa – 1967.
One can’t help but wonder how the various members of the retail food chain can make a profit with such low – priced items. To me, it is somewhat nostalgic to be paying $0.35c for a delicious, high – quality ice cream sandwich and I enjoy it very much.
The texture of Hershey’s Mighty Mini Ice Cream Sandwich is quite pleasing. The chocolate wafers that sandwich the vanilla ice cream are soft, yet firm and the ice cream is firm, yet it softens – up quickly. The overall mouth feel offered by this ice cream sandwich is excellent.

Taste / Flavor
This ice cream sandwich really tastes great. To me, it tastes just the way an ice cream sandwich is supposed to taste. The vanilla ice cream is cool and just sweet enough and the chocolate wafers are a great counterpart.
I have eaten other varieties of Hershey’s Ice Cream before and have only encountered tasty items. This tasty treat tastes jut as good as any other brand of ice cream sandwich and all other brands are higher priced than Hershey’s.
Hershey’s Mighty Mini Ice Cream Sandwich is packaged in a standard type ice cream sandwich paper wrapper. The blue and white wrapper features an illustration of a little ice cream sandwich with the words ‘Mighty mini’ printed across it. Printed above the name is the suggested retail price : $0.35. The side label also lists all relevant ingredient and nutritional information.
All things considered, Hershey’s Mighty Mini Ice Cream Sandwich is a high quality and very inexpensively priced product that is also very tasty. Roughly half the size of a normal ice cream sandwich, this cute little treat is available at many convenience stores, gas stations and small grocers everywhere. This item is highly recommended.
